Welcome to Beach Boyz Wrestling!
The purpose of Beach Boyz Wrestling Club (BBWC) is to develop the novice wrestler in the fundamentals of wrestling and hone the skills of the more experienced wrestler. BBWC is open to all wrestlers, from first grade through 12th grade. Participation with BBWC not only develops a more skilled wrestler, but also a more agile, flexible, and healthier athlete. Beach Boyz Wrestling Club also provides a safe environment with all club practices taking place in the mat room at First Colonial High School.
Our coaching staff is headed up by William Stravino. Coach Stravino is the varsity head coach at First Colonial High School and he is assisted by the First Colonial junior varsity coach Rodney Johnson, as well as Aaron Fuller, Chris Maynor, Ryan Bereng, and Trey Freeman. Together, these coaches work to develop our high school wrestlers. Our middle and elementary school age wrestlers are coached by Larry Spruill. Coach Spruill is the wrestling coach at Virginia Beach Middle School. Keegan Van Auken, an FC alum, has coached at FCHS and is currently the assistant at Cape Henry.
Club practices include physical conditioning, technique and skill instruction, and team building. Practices are twice weekly depending on experience level and age. Elementary sessions are Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00-6:00. Middle School practice times are Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00-7:30. The High School/Advanced practice meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00-7:30. The wrestling room is located off the main gym by the tennis courts, on the right side of the school. The wrestling information for the 2017-2018 season, including a yearly calendar, is available for download. The competition schedules for First Colonial High School as well as Virginia Beach and Lynnhaven Middle Schools are also available. In addition, there is a list of tournaments with links that are open to all. Please check the appropriate tabs at the top of this page.
